View Full Version : [xfce] xfce: font, icon, application sizes

August 7th, 2009, 08:16 AM
Hi !

Is it possible to increase the size of the fonts and icons within all applications, windows, menus etc.?

I'm running mythbuntu (Which uses xfce) and because of the distance to the screen everything outside of myth is pretty small so I'm looking for a way to make "everything" bigger.

Thanks for any help.

fonts is easy, it's under appearance & window manager
icons is a little tricky, the desktop is under desktop> icons
the filemanager is under view in the file manager, there's zoom in/out it will remember the settings. also under edit> preferences for the side panel icons.
the menus i don't see a way.

Excellent, worked a treat.

The main menu increase in size as well. Just need to find a way now to increase the height of the panel. Fonts are too big now, so the bottom bit of the application selection buttons (or whatever the buttons to switch between open applications are called) are cut off.

Also need to figure out how I can get firefox to remember the zoom level.

Any ideas ?

right click panel> customize panel.

firefox: edit> preferences> content> fonts&color> advanced
set the size you want and uncheck " allow pages to choose ..."

firefox should also remember zoom level on a per page setting.
